I always find it funny how certain players have been labeled here...

I think we need an "AROUND THE LEAGUE TUBMONSTER" forum where we discuss other teams' problematic, injury prone players.

WE ARE NOT ALONE

I was reading a Bears forum trying to gain some insight as to how their fans see the upcoming game. One of the threads was about Kevin White. Remember him?

There are so many tubmonsters out there....would make your head spin. Apparently injuries happen to other teams as well. I wasn't aware.

:roll:

No fuckin' way. The steelers trainers and staff are incompetent fucks, and the front office and Tomlin only drafts weaklings. Every other team does w a y better in that regard. All 31 of them. All 1,643 players are in perfect conditioning and never have injury issues.

Agreed. We need better scouts....

Surprised no one in the Carolina front office picked up Olen's propensity for foot injuries.

When Zivco was here I showed the stats that showed the Steelers' man-hours lost to injury had a slightly higher mean rate than the NFL average, but yet was not statistically significantly different.

He gave his typical emotional non sequiturs to that...it was fun.

And don't forget that all our guys have small wrist circumferences...and probably really low HIG factors.

1-2 injuries is bad luck, but lightning doesn't keep striking the same guy every year or every other year. I think if you go and look at guys victimized by "bad luck" at least 3 times you'll find them struck by "bad luck" several more times in their career.

I don't know, maybe 10-15% of players are more - some much more - susceptible to injury than others. I'm not sure why this would surprise anyone or continue to be debated.

Troy battled injuries his whole career. Ben has battled injuries his whole career. Shazier is going to battle injuries his whole career. Pouncey and Bell are one injury away from establishing themselves in that group, as well.

So "guys struck by bad luck 3 tiimes" are in essence guy's prone to injury, is that what you're saying?

Remember when DeCastro dove at Pouncey's knee?

Remember when Reggie Nelson hit Bell's knee with his helmet flush?

Are these guys simply injury prone or would anyone in a similar situation have a season ending injury?

Senquez was a tub monster.

How can you lump players into a "category" who suffer severe injuries as the result of on the field chaos?

I don't get it. And this doesn't even factor in wrist circumference or frame size.

Most likely yes...certainly far more likely than "just really bad luck"....twice

In many cases probably no. Most players get hit like that several times throughout a year - you just don't see or recall it because most of those guys walked away a little sore, maybe, but uninjured.

I guess your response implies that some people have weaker ligaments than others?

I mean, I don't know what player's knee wouldn't get fucked up from the DeCastro submarining of Pouncey's knee.

One of Shazier's first injuries was because a defensive player knocked an o lineman into his knee sideways while he was looking at the other side of the pile of bodies. After the whistle, and it took four games for him to get back to the starting lineup, if I remember right.

People love to deny the randomness of the universe. You don't have nearly as much control over your life as you think. Football is no different.

I think STD is a riot. I enjoy the creativity. Makes me laugh.

And his Haley trying to score less than 30 points a game idea took some heat but it actually goes along with what many have been saying... just in a very funny way. FOS

I'm not implying it, I'm stating it as a fact. Some people have tighter/less elastic ligaments than others. Some have shorter ligaments than others. Same with bones and joints. This makes them more likely to get injured, all else equal.

I remember Timmons after being drafted couldn't stay healthy in camp, had a tough time getting on the field. The second round pick that year did stay on the field during camp, prompting many to essentially label Timmons at that time a tubmonster.

Timmons I believe went on to start 101 consecutive games. The other guy, not so much.

Actually it happens nearly every play: RB falling on the back on an Olineman's legs. Or a WR engaged in a block downfield and he gets rolled up from behind

AV stepping on Ben's lower leg Sunday could have been a disaster. Thank goodness he takes good care of himself.

Do you guys ever watch the Steelers' pregame stretch?
It's like a buncha guys hanging out and carrying on, waiting for the work release bus to show up...

Injuries happen. Life happens.
It's the preparation for and response to such that makes the real difference.

I bet if our players were coached to take those preparations with a bit more serious discipline and could be shown the bigger picture AS A TEAM, in general, they'd be among those with the better prepared skeletal and connective tissue...

Generally speaking, the injuries that occur could be less serious and of shorter duration if the prep and stretch was a bit more serious.

Can't possibly expect such a standard to be set by our "Leader of Grown Assed Men", though, right?

Injuries happen.
Some probably have more flexible joints, tendons, muscles, etc......
Some heal quicker and can rebound faster.
Some are just lucky
Some are in the wrong place at the wrong time.

How does one explain the phenomena of Eli Manning.
He is a big bucket of silly putty......
has not missed a game in forever.
He should not have walked off that field on Monday night.
Took at least 2 kill shots.
Got driven into the turf on one play by every last ounce of Ngatas body.
Yet never missed a play.

static stretching has been proven ineffective for injury preventions. http://www.bmj.com/content/325/7362/468 The stuff they stand around and do together is probably more a comraderie thing. Everyone is now doing dynamic stretches, which are usually done in small positional groups or alone. It's not the 90's anymore.

Yep. And what you do immediately before the game isn't going to have a huge impact. There's only so much you can do with the tendons/ligaments you have, and it takes years of proper conditioning to to have a marginal impact.

And I can add 20 lbs of muscle, but it won't do much for my tendons/ligaments/joints except subject them to greater force than they're used to or that my body intended.

You guys are wrong. I don't follow any other teams or pay attention to their injury reports, but I perceive the Steelers as suffering a disproportionate amount of injuries. And it's all because Tomlin has the team prepare for games like prison inmates working out in the yard. You know, because they're black.

Hope you didn't hurt yourself stretching for another thing to blame on Tomlin.

Ravens have 15 guys on IR. How does this skew predictive tubmonster analytics?

Please tell me why you think they look like they're in prison. What about them makes them look like inmates.

You guys are wrong. I don't follow any other teams or pay attention to their injury reports, but I perceive the Steelers as suffering a disproportionate amount of injuries. And it's all because Tomlin has the team prepare for games like prison inmates working out in the yard. You know, because they're black.

I'll readily admit that what I said was a "stretch" </pun>
but you, sir, took it to a whole new and much lower level of despicable.

congratulations.

dogwhistle

In politics, to make an innocuous statement which is designed to trigger previously indoctrinated bigotry & hatred without being recognized by outsiders for bigotry or hateful speech.

Ex. “Do you guys ever watch the Steelers' pregame stretch? It's like a buncha guys hanging out and carrying on, waiting for the work release bus to show up...”

Listen, Reverend, my entire point was that they just mill around like they have no place particularly interesting to be.

You reverse-racist bigoted Tomlin apologists are the ones kicking this to the ash heap.

I'm done here.
Good day to you, sirs.

Exactly. "Dog whistle" is used by both sides to whip the useful idiots into a frenzy.

So is "race-baiting."

You're done here because you've dug yourself into a hole and have the good sense to quit digging. I'll give you that.

No, actually "race-baiting" and "racism" are equivalent when accurate/appropriate. It's when they're bullshit that it becomes a dog-whistle.

And who decides when it's actual racism or race baiting?

I'm struggling with your logic, Kodiak. Are you saying that it's only when a claim of race-baiting or racism is spurious that it becomes a dog whistle?

I repeat the definition, which is definition 2 from Urban Dictionary:
dogwhistle
In politics, to make an innocuous statement which is designed to trigger previously indoctrinated bigotry & hatred without being recognized by outsiders for bigotry or hateful speech.

The definition seems reasonable to me. If you are claiming that dog whistling as defined above doesn't actually exist, and is just made up to serve the purposes of "reverse racists," then that is a coherent objection. Laughable, but coherent. But saying dog whistling, by definition, is a false claim of racism, well that's just complete horseshit.

If you want to continue this, I suggest we move it to General Discussion. It doesn't really belong here.

You assholes can fuck up a good thing like arguing about football and bitching about the Steelers coaches by bringing this racial nonsense into it. Thread locked. Next time kids go to the timeout box. Don't make us moderate. Nobody wants to.
